The success of Wet wet wet's cover of Love is all around, featured in the soundtrack of Four weddings and a funeral and which spent many weeks at number one in the UK charts, sparked interest in the original sixties version by the Troggs, whose style was raw rock'n'roll. Their lead singer, Reg Presley, had a distinctive, suggestive style.
The Troggs began their run of chart hits with Wild thing, a novelty song that reached number two in the UK but topped the charts for six weeks in America. By the time it peaked in America, the Troggs were on their second UK single - With a girl like you, which went all the way to number one. Thus, they occupied the number one positions in Britain and America simultaneously, but with different songs, but they never reached number one again in either country. Nevertheless, they had several other major UK hits including Love is all around, I can't control myself and Anyway that you want me, all of which made the UK top ten, together with the top twenty UK hits Give it to me and Night of the long grass.
This collection includes all the essentials. The Troggs were a somewhat odd sixties group but that's why they are worth listening to.

If you've heard a Troggs single and want to hear more..or like sixties music and are collecting cds by the top groups of the time..or want to upgrade your vinyl Troggs collection, then this cd is for you...all the tracks are originals and you really do get all their sixties single hits on this inexpensive cd.

This is the real deal with the original versions of the classic Troggs hits. Other pressings are available which cone over dull and lifeless ...even though they play the songs well. . . . but these are the Fontana originals. Look for the Troggs Tapes if you want a laugh. This features the band trying to get an elusive follow up to their hits run." Cross your hands Pete!" Reg Presley says ...meaning He wanted the drummer to do what he'd just done in a previous take. Sniff it out...well worth the effort. But back to this package... superb value super hits .

Best of collections of this group. At first sight there isn't a lot of songs. But selection of tracks the magnificent. These are original records. I have this collection of songs many years.

I bought this for one of my sons as a replacement for one that he left in his car when it was sold. Although the disc itself is perfectly OK and he's very happy with it, the plastic case was damaged - cracked - but he didn't mind. It arrived quickly, as do most of Amazon's products and my son listens to it a lot.

a run down of the andover bands sixties hits. a great collection which would be a five star album had it included the classic 'evil woman' and some of their last sixties album 'mixed bag',but neither of the afformentioned were hits,hence their ommision. of all the sixties bands,none sounded like the thumping,pounding troggs.

This takes me back to my teenage years in the sixties when the music was able to be heard and you could understand all of the lyrics which always had a story.
